Visconti new 14k nib in Voyager 2020 - have you tried?



Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I am looking for an opinion about the new 14k nib, which is in the Visconti Voyager 2020 model.

 

At the moment, I am considering the purchase of Visconti.  I am thinking between Visconti Medici midi with a palladium FINE nib and the Voyager 2020 model with a new 14k FINE nib.  This will be my first "expensive' Visconti (I have Van Gogh with steel fine nib now, I used to have Rembrandt and Pericle).

I am curious about both the palladium and 14k nibs, because I do not have experience with them. I had an opportinity to tried to write with Visconti with palladium fine nib, pen from a friend. His fine nib turned out to be super wet, too wet for my taste, but it wrote really nice and I like it. But I'm a little worried about this wetness.

I had not an opportunity to try this new 14k nib anywhere. I don't know what to expect...

 

Does anyone have any experience with new 14k nib from Visconti an/or comparison 23palladium fine nib with 14k new nib?

 

Thanks!

14k nib from Visconti, Homo Sapiens Lava "Terra di Siena":

First one, "F": Ink flow issues.

Second one, "M": Even worse, not usable at all. (Photo)

Third one, "F": Writes well, no issues. (Photo)

Oh, that looks terrible! Great that you finally get one which is writing. But the third one... 😳

 

I finally decided oto get Visconti Medici Midi with a 23k Palladium nib, since this is the last chance for one (palladium and midi pen) - I could check the nib in the store and it's ok. I just regret that it's Fine, because I would like EF the most, but I'm very, very happy anyway!

Ahh Visconti “quality”...sadly a thousand times better than Stipula.  If you get one that works I think the Palladium nib feels softer and has wetter ink flow.  I’ve tried the 14k nibs and the one that worked was ok but nothing special.

@NikaaYou asked for some photos of the latest nib, so here it is.

 

 

 

Thank you! :) The same nib is in Voyager 2020. Oh, I'm so happy that I decided to get Medici with 23k Palladium Fine (and it works great :)!).

@NikaaI recently purchased my first Visconti. This came with an 18k Medium nib. It wrote amazingly out of the box. I hope you enjoy yours.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
